    The five new cases confirmed Friday were also believed to be tertiary transmission cases.

    They included an Air Force chief master sergeant who was in the same hospital as the first MERS patient, but health ministry officials believe it was a case of tertiary transmission from another person who had contracted the MERS coronavirus from the first patient at the hospital.

    Such speculation is based on the fact that the man began showing symptoms of MERS past the maximum known incubation period of 14 days for the disease since his last possible contact with the first patient on May 17, they noted.

    (LEAD) Additional S. Korean dies from MERS

    2015/06/05 06:26

    SEOUL, June 5 (Yonhap) -- An additional South Korean has died from the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, the health ministry said Friday, bringing the total number of deaths from the viral disease to four.

    The ministry also reported five new cases, raising the total to 41.

    The new fatality came on Thursday as a 76-year-old patient, who was confirmed on May 21 to have contracted the virus, died.

    The five new patients include a 45-year-old Air Force chief master sergeant, which represented the first MERS case among members of the military. He was hospitalized in the same hospital as South Korea's first MERS patient last month, but the case could also be a tertiary infection at the hospital.

    The four other cases are also believed to be tertiary infection cases.
